My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Since life isn't an exotic foreign film, there's online dating. But that's okay. I only know two languages, and one of them not very well. I have some things going for me, though: a career that fulfills me, a healthy sense of humor, and passion. I know how to think, and I know how to let go and play, which are not mutually exclusive, by the way. A kind, fun, curious man beside me is what I'm looking for. My needs are simple but important. You take care of yourself and are okay with others taking care of you. You read. You laugh often. Good food matters. You like people, and they like you. You are open, honest, and care about stuff. You either love to cook or you love that I will cook for you. Commitment doesn't scare you.

I'm fortunate. I'm close to my family, and we're all still here, healthy and hopeful and interested in each other--with some dysfunction thrown in for good measure. I like nice things, like everyone else, but I'm a teacher. No materialist here. I'll drive my car till it's ready to be put out to pasture. I'd' much sooner spend my money on food or travel, not stuff. Dogs and dancing…well, there are a lot of things I love. There are many things I want to try.

Exploring, creativity, and traveling are essential pieces of any relationship I will have. I have some ambitions, such as publishing my YA novel, and teaching is the career for me (middle school English and history). I'm very okay with that, too. I love being in nature--especially hiking. Dogs, dancing, and those moments when you're open enough to catch what's fanciful--I believe I can have this while still keeping my feet on the ground.

If you are bothering to read this, you probably already know what you like. I do, too, but being open is integral to being online, isn't it? Easy to write off people. Curious men are often sexy men. So are people with generous spirits. I'm a giving and passionate person who believes myself to be a work in progress. I love the vulnerability that comes with a close relationship. There's always a risk, but sometimes that risk pays off in great dividends.
